UF station drops classical music for news


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@alligator.org

Beginning Monday, airtime on WLTFT-FM,
the UF-owned radio station that plays mainly
classical music, will consist almost entirely of
National Public Radio programming.


The changes, which could result in layoffs
next month, are part of an effort to offer stu-
dents more experience in broadcasting news
and to bring in more money and listeners for
the station, said John Wright, dean of UF's
College of Journalism and Communications,
which runs the station.
Formerly Classic 89, the station will go by


only its official name, WUFT-FM. By mid-Sep-
tember, Dean Wright said students should be
broadcasting during two hour-
Local long news blocks every day.
News "The idea is for students to
leave this college and be ahead
of the curve," he said.
Dean Wright said even though he foresees


a decrease in audience at first, he expects it to
eventually rebound and expand.
"It's happened at every single station that's
made this transformation across the country,"
he said.
In the first year, operational costs could in-
crease by about $5,000, even though NPR will

Community to hold festival honoring African traditions


By JENNA EZELL
Alligator Contributing Writer

Competitors will whip up sweet
potato pies, throw down with step
dance, get in the groove to African
drumming and toss out poetic vers-


es Saturday at the Homowo African
Festival in Gainesville.
The Homowo is a traditional
festival of Ghana, a West African
nation, which honors the past year
of the moon, sun and life-sustaining
food.
"This is the time when you


come together and forgive indi-
viduals with a
Around handshake and
Gainesville a hug," said Ay-
oka Jasey, the
event coordinator.
Vendors will sell African prod-
ucts including shea butter, drums,


masks and food from the Caribbe-
an, Nigeria and Ghana, she said.
Boluwatife Akinyemi, president
of the African Student Union at UF,
said her organization will attend
and her mother will serve tradition-
al Nigerian food.
"I think it's a great opportunity


to really showcase different sides of
African culture," Akinyemi said.
The festival will be held by the
African community of Gainesville
from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday at
the Garden of Beginning, 19024 NE
21st St. Competitions will begin at
2p.m.

Democrats, GOP spar over Sotomayor vote


WASHINGTON (AP) The Senate
debate over Supreme Court nominee So-
nia Sotomayor turned bitter Wednesday,
after Democrats warned the GOP it would
pay a steep price for opposing the judge
who would be the first Hispanic justice,
and a top Republican charged they were
playing destructive racial politics.
Majority Leader Harry Reid implored
Republicans Wednesday to join Demo-
crats in voting to confirm Sotomayor


next week, warning that GOP opposition
would bring the same sort of public back-
lash that followed the party's spirited op-
position to measures that would have
given some illegal immigrants a chance
to gain legal status.
"I just think that their voting against
this good woman is going to treat them
about the same way that they got treated
as a result of their votes on immigration,"
said Reid, D-Nev.

ON CAMPUS
Rape reported Thursday
after two years
An on-campus rape that was
reported Thursday apparently oc-
curred about two years ago.
The woman, who is no longer
a student, was a senior at the time
of the alleged rape, University Po-
lice Department Lt. Darren Baxley
said.
She was 22 years old when it
happened, he said.
She told police that an acquain-
tance raped her in a dark, wooded
area of campus, though she is not
sure exactly where on campus it
was.
"We're working with her to fig-
ure out where it happened," Bax-
ley said.
He said it wasn't clear why
she's not sure of the location or
why she waited so long to report
the alleged rape.
"It's hard to say," Baxley said.
"I think maybe she's just finally
worked up the courage and wants
somebody to know about it."
The suspect has not been con-

Employee files complaint
against ex-boyfriend
A sworn complaint for stalk-
ing has been filed against the ex-
boyfriend of a UF employee after
he allegedly called the woman
about 100 times Sunday night.
The 42-year-old employee,
who works in the southeast sec-
tion of campus, told police her
ex-boyfriend began calling her
repeatedly around 10 p.m., said
University Police Department
spokesman Capt. Jeff Holcomb.
She recognized the number,
decided not to answer and also
turned her cell phone ringer off.
He kept calling, and when
she woke up the next morning
she noticed there were about
100 missed calls on her phone as
well as several voice messages,


she told police.
The content of the voice mes-
sages was not detailed in the re-
port, Holcomb said. The man, a
41-year-old Gainesville resident,
began calling her at work Monday
morning.
After receiving seven calls at
work by about 11 a.m., she report-
ed the calls to police.
In addition to stalking, the man
faces possible charges for violat-
ing a restraining order, Holcomb
said.
As of Monday, when the inci-
dent report was filed, police had
yet to make contact with the ex-
boyfriend, he said.

Locals protest St. Francis House's 130-meal limit


Gainesville resident Corey Williams speaks at a protest outside City Hall Wednesday. Protesters marched
from the St. Francis House homeless shelter to voice their opposition to an ordinance that limits the num-
ber of meals a shelter can serve to the homeless.


By ROBERTA 0. ROBERTS
Alligator Writer

James Chamberlain decided
to protest the 130-meal limit at
the St. Francis House when he
heard the story of a pregnant
woman who was turned away
from a meal. She was the 131st
person of the day, he said.
"Based on moral, ethical stan-
dards alone, if she's pregnant
and hungry, let her eat," said
Chamberlain, from Catholic Ac-
tion Resource Exchange, the or-
ganization that put the protest
together.
About 30 to 50 people
marched from the St. Francis
House and ended at the steps of
City Hall, where protesters spoke
out against the limits Tuesday.
The 130-meal limit is enforced
by the city because St. Francis
House set a 130 limit when they
initially applied to obtain a spe-
cial-use permit allowing them to
serve more than 20 meals a day,
said Bob Woods, Gainesville
spokesman.
Religious organizations such
as St. Francis House can serve
no more than 20 meals without a
special-use permit.


County Commissioner Rod-
ney Long has spoken against
the restriction, and Mayor Pe-
geen Hanrahan has advocated
a temporary lifting of the limits,
Chamberlain said.
Long and Hanrahan did not
return phone calls.
Kent Vant, executive director
of the St. Francis House, said the
special-use per-
mit is renewed
every five
years by the
city planning
board.
When re-
newing the
permit earlier
this year, Vant asked about re-
moving or increasing the limit.
The planning board told him
that only the City Commission
has the authority to change the
permit's limit, he said. The city
planning board can only renew
it.
Chamberlain is confident that
his cause will succeed.
"It's not a matter of if it's
lifted," he said. "It's a matter of
when, and we believe that with
our collective voice it will be
sooner rather than later."


Former GPD officer receives 24-month probation


By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Staff Writer
kemmets@alligator.org

Former Gainesville Police Department Of-
ficer William Billings, who embezzled from
GPD and solicited prostitutes on the job, has


received his sentence.
After a judge found him guilty of scheming
to defraud and official misconduct, Billings
received 24 months probation and will not
be allowed to enter Gainesville and Alachua
County's mapped prostitution areas, said State
Attorney's Office spokesman Spencer Mann.


Billings will also need to take an HIV test
and provide a DNA sample to
Local the court.
News Mann said Billings will have
to pay restitution to the state by
giving back the amount of money that he stole
through falsifying pay role and for the cost of


the investigation.
Capt. Lynne Benck, who led the investiga-
tion, said Billings stole over $6,000.
In total, he will pay more than $14,500.
A GPD internal affairs report stated that
14 women said they had sex with Billings for
money while he was on duty.

Professor pleads not guilty to felony


By THOMAS STEWART
Alligator Staff Writer
tstewart@alligator.org
A UF professor arrested in January
while trying to trade cocaine for sexual
favors pleaded not guilty to the charges
earlier this month.
Michael Heckenberger, 47, an associ-
ate professor in UF's Department of An-
thropology, was charged with sale of a
controlled substance within 1,000 feet of
a church, a felony, on Jan. 17 after an of-
ficer in his patrol car watched him throw
a bag on the street, according to a police
report.
The substance in the bag field-tested
positive for cocaine, the report stated.


Heckenberger said the cocaine wasn't
his. He told police he was "curious" and
wanted to trade it for sexual favors from
a man he had been
standing with.
The arrest hap-
pened about 450 feet
away from the Pro-
gressive Church of Our
Lord Jesus Christ in
northwest Gainesville.
Heckenberger A UF employee
since 1999, Hecken-
berger was placed on paid administra-
tive leave in February, according to UF
spokesman Steve Orlando. Heckenberger
draws a salary of almost $72,000, accord-
ing to UF records.


His arrest happened four days after
his probation for a possible drunk driv-
ing incident was cut short by the court.
In January of 2008, he was pulled over
at 2 a.m., and the arresting officer noted
in the police report that he "showed signs
of impairment and admitted to drinking
a few beers." Heckenberger refused to
perform field sobriety tests and did not
consent to a breathalyzer test.
Last July, after pleading no contest to
reckless driving, his license was revoked
for six months. Heckenberger also agreed
to one year supervised probation, almost
$600 in fines and court costs, 50 hours of
community service, alcohol safety classes
and random drug and alcohol screen-
ings.


City increases


fines, not taxes

* PARKING TICKETS WILL NOW COST $20.

By PATRICK ANNESTY
Alligator Writer

The city has avoided raising property taxes in fa-
vor of adjustments such as higher fines for parking
tickets and false burglary alarms.
A parking ticket will cost $20 instead of $15, and
the second false burglary alarm will now cost $60, up
from $26.25, said Bob Woods, spokesman for the City
of Gainesville.
In addition to the increased fines, the city resolved
a $7.1 million deficit with budget cuts to city depart-
ments. The budget year begins Oct. 1.
A proposed cut to reduce the budget for cultural
activities by 10 percent was voted down by the City
Commission. Funding for the Hippodrome State The-
atre will remain at its current level.
City Commissioner Jack Donovan said one of the
largest cuts reduced the annual pay raise of city em-
ployees.
Gainesville City City employees typically re-
Governmen ceive an annual raise of 3 per-
cent, he said. For next year, that
number has been reduced to 1 percent, saving the city
$900,000.
The city saved an additional $900,000 by delaying
the construction of a new fire station.
The opening of the station was pushed back to the
end of 2010, after the next fiscal year, he said.
One city employee will be laid off due to budget
changes, but a number of vacant positions will re-
main available, Donovan said.
In addition, the city will offer early retirement to
employees with more than 17 years of service. Nor-
mally, city retirement benefits are awarded after 20
years.
If any employees choose to retire early, the city
would not immediately seek to fill their vacancies, a
process that could save $340,000, Donovan said.
Rather than close the city-owned Ironwood golf
course, which Donovan said will incur $750,000 in
losses next year, the commission voted to increase
the green fees by $5 per round.
The city now has a balanced budget. The proposed
millage rate, which determines how much landown-
ers pay in property tax, will not increase, Donovan
said.

Santa Fe College to construct $17M fine arts hall


* THE THEATER IS PROJECTED TO
OPEN IN JANUARY 2011.

By STEVE JOHNSON
Alligator Writer

The days of Santa Fe College renting UF
facilities to accommodate its performing
arts will soon be over.
This August, SFC will begin construc-
tion on a $17 million fine arts hall at its
northwest campus.
"We can hardly wait to open the doors


to this facility," said Alora Haynes, chair-
woman of the Santa Fe College Fine Arts
program. "My faculty and students on
campus have deserved this facility for a
long time."
Projected to open in January 2011, the
new facility has been under development
for three years and will be 39,599 square
feet, said Rebecca Rogers, director of fa-
cilities planning at SFC.
Students can watch the building's con-
struction through a webcam provided by
SFC.
Currently, the 10 groups that perform


on SFC campus are confined to an audito-
rium with less than 300 seats for its audi-
ence members.
"Many high school auditoriums are
better than our current facili-
Santa Fe ties," Haynes said.
Co4311 The new performing arts
center will have 600 seats
across the floor and balcony, along with
some of the best acoustics in Gainesville,
she said.
The new facility will be funded by pri-
vate donations and money the college bor-
rowed through bonds. SFC also plans to


raise money by selling seats that people
can have their names engraved on.
Haynes said the new fine arts hall will
not be in competition with other venues in
the area.
"We exist for the purpose of the aca-
demic programs," she said.
As for the first show in January of 2011,
Haynes would not comment on any specif-
ics.
"We have a production already in
mind," she said. "It will be very interna-
tional and represent music, theater, dance
and art."

Editorial


Footing the Bill

GPD sentencing doesn't

fit the crime
Former Gainesville Police Department Lt. Bill Billings
has finally faced the music.
Well, at least partially.
If he was facing "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club
Band," he would have to own up to Mr. Kite before the
needle of judgment was removed from atop his head.
For those who don't remember, Billings was the subject
of an internal investigation in February when his fellow
officers reported that he was soliciting prostitutes while
on the job.
The investigation revealed, however, that he also com-
mitted payroll fraud that amounted to just more than
$5,000. Billings was supposedly "recruiting" officers in
other cities and was getting paid overtime to do so. It turns
out that what he was doing on the city's dime was closer to
giving local prostitutes a shot of his love.
After seven months of investigations (oh, bureaucrats),
Lt. Billings has finally been sentenced. According to Al-
ligator archives, State Attorney Bill Cervone said Billings
would face up to five years in prison for felony theft charg-
es and up to a year for prostitution charges. So what did he
get? The full six years? A three-year compromise?
Nope. Billings faces 24 months of probation. Hardly
hard time if you ask us. Billings does, however, have to
pay a restitution charge of almost $15,000.
Additionally, he loses certain rights due to his con-
victed felon status. However, nowhere in the sentencing
does it address the fact that Billings solicited prostitutes.
They got one thing right with making him pay the restitu-
tion but also something very wrong by not addressing the
prostitution.
Not to mention that two of the women who testified
against Billings were 13 and 14 when they were solicited.
No commentary is really needed there, but it does hammer
home the point that Billings needs to face a punishment
more serious than probation. Sleeping with a 13-year-old
is heinous. Doing it with money stolen from the city of
Gainesville is ridiculous. But, what's even more henious
and ridiculous is when it's utterly ignored.
Billings' former cohort, Dave Reveille, faces hard pris-
on time. Reveille was the officer who not only had sex with
prostitutes while on the job, but did so forcibly. Obvious-
ly, rape is much more serious than "merely" soliciting, so
the guy definitely deserves it.
However, Reveille only got in trouble for it at the same
time Billings' investigation started. A previous investiga-
tion occurred in 2005 but was apparently dropped and
forgotten.
This story hasn't stolen our innocence (you know, like
how Billings stole the innocence of a 13-year-old girl). We
know that just because someone has a badge doesn't mean
that they are morally sound. In fact, a lot of times it works
the other way.
However, it does sadden us that when GPD investi-
gates an internal crime this serious, they could allow it to
slip between the cracks. And, when they do catch some-
one, the consequences are nil.
But whatever, the record will play on. (And instead of
Mr. Kite topping the bill, the people of Gainesville will be
paying it.)

Guest column

Better to tax services than the rich


rian Miller's column in Thursday's Alligator showed
his complete ignorance of basic economics and fed-
eral revenue code.
Miller would have it that we tax only the rich at ab-
surdly high levels and have them carry the entire bur-
den of taxation while the poor ride free. While this sce-
nario works wonders in magical, happy Progressiveland,
where gumdrop rivers flow to hospitals that provide free
health care, this is a terrible idea in the real world.
The fact is that the rich already pay huge shares of the
taxes. The wealthiest Americans the top 1 percent -
pay 35 percent of all taxes in America.
The not rich half of all Americans pay only 4 per-
cent of the taxes. By some estimates, a full 43 percent of all
Americans pay no federal taxes at all. The revenue code
is wrought with so many exemptions, deductions and re-
fundable credits (read: free money) that only the wealthy
pay federal tax as it is.
Yet Miller would have us further shift this burden by
removing the sales tax and only taxing the rich.
The super wealthy currently pay a marginal rate of 46
percent in some states. With coming Obama tax increases,
that will jump another 10 points.
If the government took 56 percent of every dollar you
earned, what would you do?
Easy! You wouldn't earn it!
Money at that rate is often not worth earning. People
instead don't do the extra work, send the money to off-
shore accounts or funnel the money into stock options and
benefits.
The rich are worse off, and the government has less
money. Everyone loses.
You can't tax the rich forever, Brian Miller. Everybody
should pay his or her fair share in taxes instead of punish-


Johnathan Lott ing the successful.
Speaking Out The sales tax, however, is
a much fairer tax. It taxes con-
sumption something every-
one does at an equal rate across the board. The poor
actually spend less of their consumption in sales tax be-
cause more income goes to necessities, which are usually
exempt.
So when the rich buy a yacht or eat a steak for dinner,
they pay tax on it like everyone else.
And when they take the money and invest it into com-
panies that create jobs or drive technological growth, they
pay even a bigger tax on it 25 percent. They are hardly
"tax free" as Miller's lies would have you believe.
A sales tax falls on everyone: locals, tourists, rich, poor,
businessmen and drug dealers. No one can avoid it be-
cause everyone consumes. It ensures everyone pays a fair
share of tax on everything they consume. Only dollars that
are not spent on consumption and are directed toward in-
vestment are exempt, as they should be.
Miller does raise one valid point services are exempt
from sales tax. But instead of raising taxes on the rich to
make up for this, we should expand the sales tax to in-
clude services, so that special interests don't receive pref-
erential treatment. This extra revenue would allow us to
lower the tax rate across the board.
Miller cannot comprehend that taxing the rich hurts
the economy holistically. A sales tax taxes everyone at an
equal level based on what they choose to consume. If peo-
ple choose not to consume and instead invest their money,
everybody wins.
No, it's not very progressive. But like most things not
progressive, it works.
Johnathan Lott is a political science and economics junior.


The views expressed here are not necessarily those of the Alligator.

Letters to the Editor
SG should not determine content
During last Tuesday's Student Gov-
ernment Senate meeting, I was rather
disturbed by certain comments that were
made asking the Alligator to not report
the events that transpired. Indeed, the
reporter was specifically singled out and
told to withhold publishing that the ma-
jority party voted down a string of pro-
posed ethics legislation when they had
done just that.
Although I am just a replacement
senator serving the honorable constitu-
ents of District D, I feel I must continually
demur these alarming statements. Senate
is not an opaque body of government, al-
beit there are many who attempt to push
it in that direction, and the Alligator not
only has the right but the responsibility
to publish what was discussed, deliber-
ated and determined at the meeting.
Complaints against this paper seem to
be frequently resonating during Senate
meetings and have become more and
more appalling. The Alligator should not
have to put up with those attempting to
bash the paper's journalistic integrity.
The Alligator should continue to report
the facts, no matter what.
Grievances against the paper then are
grievances against fact. Obviously the
majority party has some soul-searching
to do if they are not complacent about
facts discussed during Senate meetings.

Column allows Obama crush to
overshadow common sense
Matthew Christ's column Tuesday
was tired and a failed attempt at enter-
taining readers.
I understand if Mr. Christ wants to
diverge from serious subjects, but surely
there is more than a few comedic ele-
ments happening these days.
President Obama is laughably trying
to convince the masses that his support
of "health care reform" is predicated to
lower costs and provide more coverage
while costing you nothing. Guffaw! Of
course a public option plan that doesn't
have to turn a profit will compete with
private plans that do! That's called free
markets in action! ROFL!
Remember that zinger he kept repeat-
ing like a broken parrot during the cam-
paign that "95 percent of Americans will
see a tax cut"? Under his administration?
HAHAHA! Suckers! Taxing businesses
(you know,where people work) isn't the
same as taxing, uh, individuals!
I'm certain Mr. Christ has those giant
cartoon hearts in his eyes for this admin-
istration and therefore can't see anything
they're doing as even remotely con-
tradictory. He's boring, and I'm bored
reading him.
I'm taking a nap until his crush is
over and he can find something current
to find funny.

Guest column

Plan will diminish health care


Universal health care.
The mere mention of it sends its
advocates scurrying to change the
subject or hide behind sound bites. There
are so many lies circulating with regard to
health care that only a trusted and credible
institution can dispel them. Unfortunately,
we must make due with CNN.
When CNNMoney.com took a close
reading of the more than 2,000 pages in
the House and Health Committee bills,
it found five important factors that "con-
tradict the president's assurances." These
contradictions, of course, are different
from the president having lied (repeat-
edly) to the American people about the bill
because lying would have required that he
had known what was in it to begin with.
Under these bills, CNN states that you
lose the ability to customize your health
plan, choosing from a pre-approved (and
noncompetitive) group of plans stuffed
full of useless fees for lobbied provisions.
Best part? You won't even know what your
state requires until this bill becomes law.
Under the promise of no longer charg-
ing more for those with chronic health con-
ditions, those who live healthy lifestyles
would see drastic increases in their fees.
As CNN put it, "It's as if car insurers had
to charge the same rates to safe drivers as
to chronic speeders with a history of acci-
dents."
The government would virtually elimi-
nate health spending accounts by requiring
low-deductible plans. Because HSA users
represent the only modicum of efficiency
in health care, we'd be destroying any sort
of incentive to not casually consume health
care resources.
President Obama stated on July 16 (and


Ben Camenker numerous times be-
Speaking Out fore and since) that
... you can keep
your doctor, you can
keep your plan. Nobody is talking about
taking that away from you."
Well, that's true, but only for five years
and only if you're covered by the Employ-
ee Retirement Income Security Act. After
this "grace period," the government forces
you into a "qualified plan." If you have
the bad luck to not work for a Fortune
500-sized megacompany, you lose your
health care even sooner. The second your
plan changes in any way we're talking
co-pays, premiums, coverage range, ad-
justed rates, deductibles... anything at all
- you go onto a "qualified plan."
You can't keep your doctor, either.
Under the Senate version, they de-
vised "medical homes" where your new
assigned doctor controls all access to spe-
cialists and testing. They decide when you
"really" need a CT scan or an operation.
Their job is to promote cost-efficiency.
During his health care broadcast,
Obama accused doctors of backing ex-
pensive treatment to make money. Now,
we'll have government denying expensive
treatment to save money! "Why use an ex-
pensive test for cancer when there's a 60
percent chance the patient doesn't have it?
...Best to just wait and see!"
Many people support this bill. They
wave their little signs, shouting "health care
is a right!" But they are confused. A "right"
is different from an entitlement. Rights are
what even the government cannot take
from you... and if this bill passes, the gov-
ernment can and will take your health.

Students search


for biofuel with


new $643K grant


* THE USDA AWARDED
SEVEN GRANTS IN ALL.

By ABBIE PARKER
Alligator Contributing Writer

Two UF professors received
more than half a million dollars
for research, and they're leav-
ing it up to the students to do
the legwork.
The $643,000 grant, one of
seven of its kind given by the
U.S. Department of Agricul-
ture, will fund research on
wood that can be used to make
biofuel like ethanol and may
result in developing crops to be
used for creating energy.
College of Forest Resources
and Conservation assistant pro-
fessor Matias Kirst and associ-
ate professor Gary Peter have
worked on the project since
2002. The grant will allow them
to bring more focus to their re-
search, Kirst said.
"It's a pretty difficult pro-
gram to get money from; its
nature is competitive because
everyone is researching plants
right now," he said.
The professors will analyze
and organize data and advise
the student researchers, he said,
because their full-time teach-
ing positions also do not allow
them to research full time.

dents and two to four under-

graduate students will conduct
the research and experiments
and meet with Kirst and Peter
daily for advising.
"We'll coach the students
through the experiments," Pe-
ter said, "but they'll be doing
all the work."
Kirst said the grant will al-
low students to get involved,
which will hopefully foster an
interest in science.
"We have [students from]
engineers who
UF are great with
Research computers to
biological ma-
jors and even unrelated majors
like journalism students who
just want to see what science is
all about," he said.
Evandro Novaes, a Ph.D.
candidate in the School of Forest
Resources and Conservation,
began working on the project
in 2006 and plans to continue
for the 2009-2010 year.
"It's important to keep mon-
ey in the program," he said.
Mark McLellan, dean of
research for UF's Institute of
Food and Agricultural Scienc-
es, said he likes the idea that
students are getting involved in
the research and said Peter and
Kirst are among UF's brightest
researchers.
"It's up to the faculty to get
students excited about science,
and Kirst and Peter know how
to do it," he said.

Dean Wright: Station will fill radio news void

RADIO, from page 1


not charge UF for the programming.
In the second year, when UF will start
paying for the new content, he said
costs to purchase programming could
increase by about $28,000, he said.
If listenership increases enough,
programming costs could escalate by
about 15 percent a year, he said, but
the subsequent increase in donations
would offset the cost.
He said current data shows that
the number of people listening to the
station drops by up to 70 percent at 9
a.m. on weekdays, which is when the
station switches from NPR's Morning
Edition to music.
Although some have argued the
drop occurs because most people
start work at 9 a.m., Dean Wright said
the data shows that other stations in
Gainesville don't see a similar dip.
He said the station's new pro-
gramming will help fill a niche that's
lacking in the community.
"Some stations do a little bit of
news, and they do a lot of talk ra-
dio," he said. "There's really not an-
other viable radio news operation in
Gainesville."
And he said listeners who prefer
classical music over news can still get
their fix on HD-2, one of the station's
three high definition channels, which
requires an HD radio receiver.
The coverage area of the HD chan-
nel is large, he said, but it doesn't
match the main station's reach.
Though he couldn't make an exact
comparison, he said the HD-2 chan-
nel's range was more than half of the
main station's.
He said listeners who want to buy
an HD receiver can get one for about
$50 and that the college is negotiating
for better deals with NPR and retail
store Best Buy.
In some cases, the station might
be able to offer the receivers for about
$25, he said, though he admitted the
situation wasn't ideal for some.
"[Though] it's a pretty reasonable

cost, even that for people on fixed in-
comes can be very problematic," he
said.
The changes have prompted push-
back from devoted classical music
fans, and Dean Wright admits he's
received more negative than positive
feedback regarding the changes.
Alice Wright, program assistant at
UF's registrar's office, said news can
be repetitive because it's accessible in
ways other than the radio.
"People need more music," she
said. "It's soothing and relaxing."
Wright also said constant news


can be overwhelming after tragedy
occurs.
"[News] is all doom and gloom,"
she said. "That's what I call it."
Paul Richards, an associate profes-
sor in UF's College of Fine Arts, called
the change a tragedy.
The switch goes against UF's mis-
sion, he said, which should be the
preservation of culture.
"Lack of access to art in any form
in a society is not healthy for that so-
ciety," he said.

'True Blood' series book author speaks at Hilton today

A1TIYYA ANTHONY # AVENUE WRITER


Charlaine Harris, author of the
"Southern Vampire Mysteries"
book series is the keynote speaker
of Gainesville Anhinga Writers'
Studio 2009 Summer Studio held
this week at the Hilton Conference
Center on 34th Street.
Tonight, she will share tricks of
her craft with aspiring novelists in
Gainesville.
Harris' succesful book series
centers on the trials of Sookie
Stackhouse, a mind-reading wait-
ress living in BonTemps, La., who
has fallen in love with the local
vampire.
Harris' novels craftily weave
the real and the surreal and won
her the Anthony Award for best
paperback mystery in 2001. The
"Southern Vampire Mysteries"
series is also the basis for HBO's
weekly drama, "True Blood," star-
ring Academy Award-winning ac-
tress Anna Paquin. The show is in
its second season.
Harris, a New York Times best-
selling author, is currently work-
ing on the 10th book to the Sookie
Stackhouse series anticipated in
2010.
How do you relate to Sookie?
Well, everyone I write about
is a part of me, which in itself is a
little scary.
Would you say you started the
current vampire literary trend?
No, Laurell K. Hamilton was
the start of the current wave of
the vampire craze, and then I
came right after her. It's certainly

a newly popular field in writing. I
feel fine to be a part of it, but I hope
that when people move along to
something else, that I'm still left
standing.
How do you feel about HBO
signing the 'Southern Mysteries
into the True Blood series?
I knew when I signed the con-
tract with Alan that he would have
to change the story somewhat be-
cause it's told from first person
point of view. And you can't film
a television show like that, but
he stays true to the spirit of the
books.
Do you believe in vampires?
I know there are people that
think that they're vampires, but
I've never met a true vampire my-
self.
Would you call the "Southern
Vampire Mysteries" frightening?
I certainly don't see my books as
frightening. Life is scary enough.
Where do you find inspiration
for your writing?
Inspiration isn't a word that
describes the writing process. If
you're a writer, that's what you do
- you think about things to write.
If you wait for inspiration, you're
going to be sitting there and your
contracts going to be gone and
your editor will fire you.
What was the one point that
you knew you were successful?
After the first book, "Dead
Until Dark," had been out maybe
three or four months, I had already
signed a contract for two books.
And they wanted to sign another


contract for three more books be-
fore the second one had even been
written.
How does your family react to
you being a writer?
They're used to it. They're used
to their mom not being like other
moms. Now that I'm very success-
ful, they finally think I'm cool.
What do you do in your free
time?
I read. I read and I write. Writ-
ing books is a very solitary pro-
cess, and the only way you can
get it done is motivate yourself to
do it. You have to be able to start
yourself and keep on going with-
out anybody standing over you.
What do you plan to do in
Gainesville?
I look forward to talking to
people in a little more depth than
I usually do. Talking about my
longevity in the publishing indus-
try will help people when they're
faced with their own choices.
Do you have any advice for
upcoming writers?
Every writer needs to read as
much as they possibly can. You
need to learn to separate the
good writing from the bad, and
you need to know why. It's also
important to always have some-
thing waiting in the wings that
you want to do. Never just have
just one project, because that just
doesn't work now. The event is Photo contributed by Caroline Grayshock

event every full moon, can no
longer sustain the event's capac-
ity.
Appelbaum, 62, had to call it
quits this summer when he re-
ceived a formal request from his
neighbors to discontinue the fes-
tival.
The noise brought on by hun-
dreds of partygoers and musi-
cians had become too much for
his neighbors.
He is opting to not fight the
request, and he said it's because
this that he gets to keep his party
going.
Alachua County officials also
found Appelbaum lacks proper
event permits to host live shows
on his 40-acre property. By code,
large gatherings must be sched-

uled at least 60 days apart. The
full moon, however, comes every
28 days. But he said he is willing
to comply with their demands.
"I just want to be a good
neighbor," Appelbaum said.
"They moved out to the country
for quiet."
Appelbaum started the festi-
val in 2005, after his organic farm
business begun to suffer.
Although he still works in the
farming industry, the music fes-
tival also helps pay his mortage
now. Tickets to the event run $15
to $20 per day or $40 for a week-
end pass.
"Everybody likes to dance, but
that requires louder music," Ap-
pelbaum said.
He began by catering to mid-
dle-age bluegrass lovers like him-
self, but in recent years, Appel-
baum started bringing out newer,
more popular Afro-rock, ska and
jazz bands The Duppies, Umo-

ja Orchestra, De Lions of Jah.
Fans followed in huge masses,
as the event has hosted up to 600
people at some shows. He real-
ized then the event was getting
out of hand.
"It's like a baby in the womb.
At some point it has to come out,"
Appelbaum said. "We either ex-
pand or go away."

"It was such a magical thing,
but that magie isn't confined
to just one place. When the
people come, the magic
starts."
DON APPELBAUM
event coordinator


Appelbaum is forced to search
for larger, more welcoming ven-
ues to host the growing festival
each new moon.
He does not bemoan the fact
that his festival will never be
on his property again, and he


Le

doesn't expect those who come to
the shows to do so either.
"It was such a magical thing,
but that magic isn't confined to
just one place. When the people
come, the magic starts," Appel-
baum said.
The stage for the bands to per-
form on is conveniently made
from a converted produce trailer
and pieces of an old greenhouse
for the covering, so mobility is
not an issue.
In April, Appelbaum found
a farm just a few miles up the
road from his farm in Alachua in
which to host the May event.
Brian McElroy, owner of the
210-acre McElroy farm expressed
interest in hosting the event after
the pair met at the April festival.
McElroy plans to host another
Farm to Family Full Moon event
on Oct. 3.
"On my end it was very stress
free and a lot of fun," McElroy
said. "They're real good people."
Appelbaum has also located


Mon Fri 9-8
Ii 9-5 Sun 12-5


another venue in which to host
the September festival, which
will be held to kick off the Gator
football season.
On Sept. 4, 5 and 6, the Farm
to Family Full Moon Gator Party
will be at the Lions Club Music
Park in High Springs.
Appelbaum plans to televise
the UF Charleston Southern
game on flat screens and have the
biggest Gator Party anywhere.
Fifteen bands will hit the stage
on Saturday and Sunday, with a
pre-party and drum clinic being
held on Friday.
There is a tentative schedule of
Full Moon Festivals to come after
the Sept. 5 and Oct. 3 events, but
he will have to keep scouting the
location for subsequent festivals,
he wants to host in late October,
November and January.
Appelbaum will keep Farm to
Family goers posted as to the lo-
cation at www.farmtofamilymu-
sic.com.

She sits in the dressing room on
her pink and brown striped bed. Her
matching dish has the word "Diva"
S printed on it.
There is no sign of anxiety on her
face. She has done this before.
Chula, the 7-pound, 8-inch-tall, tri-
colored Chihuahua, goes out on stage
to perform her number. She is the
reincarnation of Norma Desmond.
Tilting her head back with the poise
and pomp of the iconic 1950s fictional
movie star, she appears in the arms
of Kim Mead, her owner and an ac-
tress performing in the Hippodrome
State Theatre's "The Great American
Trailer Park Musical."
There is a rule in theater: Don't act
with children or animals. They will
upstage your performance.
But Chula's act alongside the sev-
en other talented human castmates


creates a more hysterical and realistic
aspect to the musical set in a modem-
day trailer park, Armadillo Acres, in
Starke.
The play, which is the Hippo-
drome's most successful Mainstage
performance in 36 years, has caused a
commotion since opening day.
The first time the show ran in 2006,
it sold nearly 22,000 tickets.
"The show is the best ever," said
Rocky Draud, general manager at the
Hippodrome Theatre. "We are hop-
ing it beats its own record. We want
to sell 25,000 tickets or even 26,000."
The box office has sold about
13,500 tickets since the show opened
in June.
"I love it when something in town
brings us all together to share a com-
mon bond," said the Hippodrome's
Artistic Director, Lauren Caldwell.

From left: Catherine Fries Vaughn, Mark Chambers, Kelly Atkins, Tim
Norton, Rachel Lomax, Chula, Kim Mead, and Jorgia McAfee of "The
Great American Trailer Park Musical."


Although the script does not in-
clude a dog, Caldwell told Mead that
she could include Chula where she
thought it could work.
Chula won over the crowd with
her beady black eyes, but the glam-
orous puppy starlet was not always
destined for the mainstage.
Mead adopted Chula, who was
badly abused at a puppy mill, three
years ago after finding her on www.
petfinder.org.
"When I first met her she was
afraid of everything," Mead said.
"She hid from me under the chair.
She didn't want anything to do with
me, but something was telling me to
take her home."
It took several months before Chu-
la would become comfortable with
her new lifestyle. While Mead helped
rehabilitate her then 5.5-pound dog,
she landed the role of Charlotta in the
UF-produced "The Cherry Orchard."
In the script, Charlotta had a dog,
so she thought it would be funny to
include Chula.
After her successful debut, Chula
reappeared on stage in the Hippo-
drome's "College: The Musical,"
directed by Caldwell, where by the
end of the show's run she would bark
along to the song in her scene.
"She just seemed to fit in,"
Caldwell said.
Chula, meaning "cute" in Spanish,
does not come short of her name.
"We've had oohs and aahs when
that dog comes in with its Harley Da-
vidson outfit," Caldwell said. "People
are dog lovers. Those that do come
to the show always comment on the
dog."
As she charms her way to the au-
dience's hearts, it is clear that Chula is
in a happier place.
"She's a one-woman dog,"
Caldwell said of Mead and Chula's
bond. "They have a very interesting
relationship."
Despite her rough past, Chula has
learned to come out of her shell and
to love again.
"Rescue dogs are very special,"
Mead said. "I had to be patient for her
to love me, and that makes her more
special."
The show has been extended to
Aug. 16.


ALEX ORLANDO + AVENUE WRITER

S Thirty may be the new 20, but stars this month have
taught us that 50 might just be the new 80.
S With the deaths of icons Michael Jackson, Farah Fawc-
ett, Ed McMahon and Billy Mays earlier this summer, it's
a wonder the baby boomer generation has anything to re-
late to anymore.
I'm sure everyone is tired of turning on the television to
see Michael Jackson. Were there track marks on his arms?
Was the body really buried with the casket? Was his nose
really still attached to his body? Does anyone really care?
Just listen to the hundreds of soon-to-come unreleased
songs, dance in front of your mirror and cry about it.
Speaking of celebrity-related heartbreak, notice the
sobbing of millions of tweens that rang out across subur-
ban America after Kevin Jonas announced his engage-
ment to Danielle Deleasia? And guess how his bandmate
bros congratulated him: Twitter. Real sentimental, guys.
Maybe Jonas and Deleasia will tweet out their wedding
invitations in a few months.

Rupert Grint hinted at his undying love for Emma Wat-
son in an interview this month. After sucking face with her


in the filming of their next movie, "Harry Potter and the
Deathly Hollows," they both said, rather unconvincingly,
that they have no attraction for each other and the kiss
was awkward. Watson reportedly has a boyfriend, but he
should be no match for the love potion Grint's brewing.
We're all pulling for you, Rupert. You've got this.

Millions of nerds, dorks and geeks put on their finest
spandex superhero outfits, hopped in mom's minivan and
headed to San Diego last week for Comic-Con 2009. There
they got to check out action figures, learn to draw their
favorite comics, read up on the latest manga and watch
sneak previews for movies such as "Avatar" and "Jonah
Hex," which stars Megan Fox.
Gaming nerds should also beware a potential addic-
tion to World of Warcraft. This online multiplayer role-
playing game is more addicting than crack. Just ask the
kid who has more than 6 million views on YouTube and
was featured on Fox News for a video of his meltdown
after his mom canceled his online account. His tantrum
included, but was not limited to, screaming, kicking, re-
moval of clothing and attempted sodomy with a televi-
sion remote.
God help his future wife.

$15 million lacrosse facility nears completion
By ANTHONY CHIANG
Alligator Writer1


While the Northeastern US is home to
the most avid lacrosse following, UF is
hoping it can bring some of that passion
down south as Gainesville will soon be
home to one of the sport's finest facilities.
The new home of the UF women's la-
crosse team, scheduled to be completed
Saturday, is shaping up to be one of the
best college lacrosse stadiums in the coun-
try.
Some of the aspects that help set this
stadium apart include the fact that it will
be used only for the lacrosse team, and the
team will have its own locker room, train-
ing room and equipment room.
"It's the No. 1 lacrosse facility in the
country," UF women's lacrosse coach
Amanda O'Leary said. "We have the abil-
ity to bring in recruits and wow them. The
facility is just completely self-sufficient."
It will be located directly across from
the Southwest Recreation Center and will
feature three fields. One will be used for
lacrosse games, and the second is a prac-
tice field for the team. The final field will
be used as a practice field for the UF soccer
team.
"It's the No. 1 lacrosse facility in
the country. We have the ability to
bring in recruits and wow them.
The facility is just completely self-
sufficient."
Amanda O'Leary
UF women's lacrosse coach

When it came down to picking a loca-
tion for the facility, there weren't many
choices.
"It was the only land on campus that
was planned long-term for recreational
sports or athletics," said University Ath-

letic Association Associate Director of Op-
erations Bryan Flood.
About 155 parking spaces have been
added on the north end of the site to allevi-
ate some of the parking trouble caused by
the softball stadium and Southwest Rec.
According to the UAA, the entire proj-
ect is costing about $15 million, and it is
being financed solely by private funds
raised by the UAA and Gators boosters.
O'Leary, who came to UF after 14 sea-
sons at Yale, had to share the women's
lacrosse stadium with the men's lacrosse
and soccer teams at her former job.


But in Gainesville, she is getting the op-
portunity to begin the program's inaugu-
ral season in her own facility.
"They have exceeded all of my expecta-
tions," she said. "They give you everything
you need to be successful here, where at
other schools you are sort of scratching for
funds."
The first game is set for Feb. 20, 2010,
as the Gators will send out 24 freshmen to
face Jacksonville. But O'Leary will not let
the young roster be an excuse for a subpar
season.
"The precedent has been set within


the sports. It's just high-quality athletics
here," she said. "We are just going to go
out and do our best to represent and keep
that bar rising."
After being hired on June 22, 2007, it
has been a long process for O'Leary to get
to this point. But now that the first game is
rapidly approaching, she looks back fond-
ly on the development of the program.
"You can't even put into words every-
thing that has gone into the process that
has led to this point," she said. "I don't
have a word to describe it. I'm just sort of
at a loss for words."

when they take on Syracuse in the SEC/Big East Challenge

Top 10 Burning Questions for 2009-10


Will the UF defense improve on 2008 and rank among the best ever?


By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
sports@alligator.org

Last year at this time, all the talk around
the UF football program was about the de-
fense.
It wasn't good.
It was along the lines of whether or not
the Gators could stop opponents enough
to allow their high-octane offense to win
games.
Much has changed in a year's time.
UF's defense, aided by a
Surprisingly good second-
ary, was just as spectacular
as its offense in 2008. The
Gators allowed only 12.9
points per game, fourth in
the nation.
UF had 26 interceptions in 2008, put-
ting it in a tie among the nation's best. This
included 14 interceptions in six games
against top-25 teams.
And the Gators return their entire two-
deep on defense for the 2009 season.
So now the question becomes: Will UF's
defense this season rank among the best
ever?
It sounds absurd until you remember
2009 is shaping up to be like 2008 with ev-
eryone a year older.
The Gators allowed only 58 first-half


points in 14 games against a schedule that
ranked second-toughest in the country, ac-
cording to the NCAA.
The unit helped contribute to a school-
record plus-22 turnover margin, second in
the country.
And the defense saved its best for last


in the BCS National Championship Game
against Oklahoma.
The Sooners entered the Jan. 8 show-
down with an offense many called the best
of all time. They had scored a ridiculous
702 points in their first 13 game (which
breaks down to an incredible 54 per game)

and had averaged 562 yards of total of-
fense.
UF's defense allowed 14 points and 363
yards in Dolphin Stadium.
That's not to say the Gators don't have
areas where they can improve. There
were still stretches last season where UF
would fall back into its bend-but-don't-
break mold, allowing teams to work their
way down the field before cracking down
inside the red zone to get a key stop or
momentum-changing interception. The
unit finished third nationally in red zone
defense.
The Gators also ranked only 15th in
rushing defense (105.4 yards/game) and
20th in passing defense (179.86 yards/
game), although it should be noted that
in total defense (285.3 yards/game), they
were No. 9 in the nation, a testament to
how difficult it can be to successfully de-
fend through the air and on the ground.
But there's a reason former UF beat
reporter and current SI.com writer Andy
Staples wrote in April that UF's backups
could likely form their own team and be
in the top 25.
Looking at the reserves on this Gators
defense, he was probably only half joking.
And that's why all signs point to the fact
that the question will likely be how, not if,
the 2009 UF defense stacks up against the
best ever.


ADAM, from page 22

(North Carolina State).
Possibly the most interesting bit
of scheduling is the Feb. 13 game
against Xavier. It will mark the
Gators' first non-conference game
during league play since 2003, and
it will come against a team that
went 27-8 last season.


After missing the NCAA Tour-
nament for the second straight
year, the out-of-conference slate
is a step in the right direction for
Donovan and his team. It's not a
sign that the program is back to
its glory days by any means, but it
displays a new way of thinking UF
has needed in the post-'04s era.
With an inexperienced team
and an unknown level of talent the


last two years, Donovan was likely
afraid to throw his team into the
fire before the conference season
began.
But why shy away from real
competition to keep his players'
confidence high early in the sea-
son if it didn't pay off when it
mattered? Isn't it better for them
to learn their mistakes and know
their weaknesses before SEC play


kicks off?
Of course it is. The Gators were
13-2 with one meaningful victory
(Washington) before conference
season last year and finished 9-7
against a mediocre-at-best SEC.
Even if the Gators lose every sin-
gle one of their matchups against
competitive teams, they will be
better prepared to work their way
through the SEC. Not to say they'll


waltz on by Kentucky or anything,
but at least the Wildcats won't be
the first top-25 team UF sees.
The Gators may not make it
back to the NCAA Tournament
with this schedule, but who's to
say they would do so by playing
easy in-state games? Even if Dono-
van's team loses the tough games,
his team will be better off for hav-
ing played them.

Top 10 Burning Questions for 2009-10


How will UF compensate for the loss of Harvin's playmaking ability?


By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
sports@alligator.org

Percy Harvin was a one-of-a-kind
player during his college career.
Whether coming out of the backfield
or stretching the field as a receiver, Har-
vin was an electrifying playmaker and
good for a touchdown per game.
With Harvin sporting the Minnesota
Vikings' purple and white instead of or-
ange and blue this fall, UF must answer
one of the only questions facing the of-
fense this year: How will the Gators re-
place Harvin?
While no single player
has shown the skill set
S Harvin possessed, UF
has plenty of options to
attempt to fill his produc-
tion by committee. At running back, Jeff
Demps and Chris Rainey will likely see
expanded roles after last year, and fresh-
man wideout Andre Debose will join
returning receivers Deonte Thompson,
David Nelson and Carl Moore.
Demps and Rainey averaged an iden-
tical 7.8 yards per carry in 2008 while
rushing for more than 600 yards each.
Much like Harvin, the two running backs


share a quick running style and the ability
to break open a play.
Despite playing in only 12 of 14 games
in 2008 and getting fewer carries than ei-
ther Demps or Rainey, Harvin finished
the year first on the team in yards per
carry (9.4) and second in rushing yards
(660) and touchdowns (10) Tim Tebow
finished on top in both.
Harvin's numbers were outstanding,
but his greatest strength was how difficult
he made defensive coordinators' prepara-
tions each week. As dangerous as he was
out of the backfield, he was just as much
of a threat lined up as a receiver.
Unless Demps or Rainey develops that
sort of versatility, the largely unproven
group of receivers will be charged with
compensating for the loss of Harvin and
the graduated Louis Murphy.
Debose has been hyped as having the
requisite skills to replace Harvin, but as a
freshman those expectations may be un-
fairly high. In addition, he and the receiv-
ing corps will first have to prove them-
selves before even being considered as
Harvin's heir apparents.
The Gators have the talent at both posi-
tions to at least replace Harvin's numbers,
but the real issue will be replacing Har-
vin's versatility and playmaking ability.


Harrison Diamond/ Alligatol
UF running back Jeff Demps will play a big role in attempting to replace Percy Harvin's
production out of the backfield. Chris Rainey and the receiving corps will also be key.
